Wind in our sails - Eddystone Pursuit raises £2,019.83

This year 70 teams entered the Eddystone Charity Pursuit for their own registered charity and Silver Stella lined up for the Minchinhampton Nkokoto Link. Alison Kennedy (Committee Member/Treasurer/Secretary), Christian Anders and Ashley Miller made it round Eddystone Lighthouse and home in 22nd place. We also received a special perseverance prize for travelling the furthest and still making the start line even though another boat crashed into us (whilst we were resting in a marina). The Link has received £621.83 from the Eddystone Committee. And we are so grateful to have received further sponsorship of £1,400 from our loyal supporters, some new friends and even a donation from the crew of the boat that bumped us.

In total we have £2,019.83 for the Nkokoto funds. Fantastic! There are 3 students currently at College studying for a 2 year Diploma in Clinical Medicine or Pharmacy. These funds are sufficient to fund all their tuition fees, course materials and accommodation until the end of their courses in August 2022 - how fabulous that a summer adventure can be converted into a life changing qualification for 3 Nkokoto students.
